In This Book

Reviewed by:

“I am in space, said the planet.” Large, bold simple linocut images in solid colours are matched with simple patterned sentences about objects, living and nonliving and where they are typically found. Emerging readers will enjoy trying to read and identify the location of each object from the picture and 1 sentence description, using the pattern, “I am in the _____, said the ______.”
Suitable for beginning writers using patterned sentences about any topic of their choice. It could be modified to write using directional vocabulary, in, on, under, around, over, etc. and/or providing a model to use different pronouns, e.g. He isナ, She isナ, We areナ, They wereナ, which is especially difficult for English language learners to master. Surprisely, quotations and sentence tags are not used here. This book would provide a good model for teachers to introduce punctuation at the early grades, rewriting text to include quotation marks. Suitable for teaching 6+1 Writing Traits; Conventions and Sentence Fluency, to primary and English language learners. It could be an excellent model for teaching about living and non-living things in Grade 1 Science: Needs of Animals and Plants. Suitable for Preschool to Grade 2.
